The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate our country’s independence and spend time with friends, family and neighbors. BBQs, parties and picnics along with a day spent in the pool and playing lawn games — can you picture it now? In the midst of preparing the grilled veggies, potato salad, hot dogs and hamburgers, it’s easy to get side-tracked when it comes to your holiday outfit.
Don’t turn to the same American flag tank you’ve worn the past several years. Yes, Independence Day means you sport the classic red, white and blue color scheme, but there are so many other ways to fashion Fourth of July accessories, aside from the cliché outfits.
Four Patriotic Pieces That Will Draw More Attention Than the Fireworks
While your patriotic outfit is sure to turn some heads this year, you should always be thinking one step ahead by pairing your ensemble with eye-catching accessories. At Shoe-Inn, we have an entire stock of patriotic shoes and bags to flip your ordinary outfit into one that’s on-trend. Take a look at our four favorite pieces whether you’re out tending the grill, playing games or watching the fireworks.
1. Red Tie-Up Espadrille Wedges
Tie-up wedges are a cute, fun and flirty statement piece that can add a pop of color to any outfit. Slip on a flowy white dress and add the wedges for a bold look, or pair it with distressed high-rise shorts and a light tank. You can’t go wrong with the lace-up style, either. It fashions a unique take on the classic wedge heel and is comfortable enough to wear throughout the day.
2. Blue Covered-Toe Flats
If you’re going for a more casual yet chic look for your Fourth of July celebrations, try covered toe, espadrille flats from designers like Maypol. Unlike your average flat, espadrilles have a heel height of about two inches to add more of a flare. Having a covered toe is perfect if you’re out in the yard, mingling with friends and playing corn hole. Espadrilles in blue will also add a hint of color to your patriotic outfit. Pair it with white capris and a red off-the-shoulder blouse or slip on a fresh dress.
3. White High-Top Star Sneakers
Are you going for comfort above all else during the Fourth of July? Then Shoe-Inn has you covered with the high-top fashion sneaker by Piranha. It’s an edgy shoe that can boost an everyday outfit to one that stands out among all others and has people wondering where they can get their own pair. The white sneakers have a contrasting star — yes, offering just the right amount of pizazz to the patriotic day. Slip on your Fourth of July shoes with relaxed jogger pants and a tank for a comfortable yet trending style.
You can even pair the white high-tops with a set of star-spangled, red or blue socks. Wearing shorts and a light sweatshirt can also be another idea, depending on what you’re feeling.
4. Denim and Washed Totes
Now that you have the outfit and shoes ready for their Independence Day debut, it’s time to think about how to carry all your essentials. Bags like the one displayed below are perfect for spreading holiday spirit and storing everything from your phone and chargers to wallet and extra makeup. Sling it over your shoulder with an all-white outfit and accents of red jewelry to finish off the theme.
Or, try out a washed tote for a trendy and chic vibe. Fitted with various pockets and organizational functions, you won’t spend your entire holiday searching for your favorite lip balm or sunscreen. Cute and functional? Even better.
